Our clerkship program

For a head start in your career, apply for a clerkship in our Perth office. You’ll work with some of the most experienced lawyers in Australia and encounter first-hand the type of work you could do as a lawyer at Allens. You’ll get to be part of a team, assisting with real matters. Your performance coach and buddy will be there to support you, help you make the most of your clerkship, get to know our people, and thrive.

We believe that we stand out as an employer because of our high-quality technical training and excellent learning environment. We’ll work with you to develop your understanding of commercial law and build your skills, providing the foundation you need to become a successful lawyer. You’ll be involved in some of the market's most complex domestic and global transactions.

We offer clerkship programs in one of three periods, two over summer and one over winter, to coincide with university holidays. During your clerkship you will work in one practice group for three weeks, giving you a consistent experience and invaluable insight into what we do and the clients we work for.

Our clerkship program is a stepping stone to bigger things – most clerks go on to become graduates with us. Here is a quick rundown of what you can look forward to:

  • a personalised induction program that introduces you to our people and the work we do;
  • on-the-job training with support from a partner and a junior lawyer, who will act as your performance coach and buddy;
  • learning opportunities across practice areas and partners, as we don't work in silos;
  • the chance to work on real matters with many of Australia's and the world's top 100 companies;
  • the opportunity to get involved in community and pro bono work, and learn about our committees and interest groups;
  • the chance to learn about working within our alliance with Linklaters and about secondment opportunities;
  • seminars that will build a strong foundation of skills to help you become an excellent lawyer and thrive in our ever‑changing world;
  • social events, where you will really get to know us; and
  • the opportunity to network with some of the best in the profession.

At Allens, our culture is made up of unique backgrounds and varying life experiences. We celebrate our people's differences across gender and gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ability, cultural backgrounds, First Nations communities, and family and caring arrangements. We encourage applicants from all backgrounds. If you require adjustments to fully participate in our program, please contact us at [email protected].
